Angry Linpus Lite -where to find a decent manual?

No, I don't mean the basic one that came with the laptop. For example, how do I add new programs, more like the Ubuntu ones that I have on my desktop? I cannot see how to upload music from an mp3 stick to the laptop - it is all these basic things that are missing....Can anybody point me in the right direction, please?

Seems to me the best place to start would be their website located here. Although, after visiting it myself, I wonder. I found links to pages that say they have manuals but there is no actual download. I found that it has feateres instead of features. Maybe try googling by the laptop name might help. I did find a few links by googling for aspire + linpus (I used aspire because I believe Acer is the ones with Linpus preinstalled) and such. But, sadly, if the Linpus website has no downloadable manual, I am not sure you will find one easily.

An interesting short Wikipedia entry.

[EDIT] Go to this site: Nice tutorials and a place to start. The tagline on his site is "Making Linpus Linux Usable". I think this site would be a great place to start. I googled for linpus + help to find this (and other sites). Google is an amazing tool.

One last place that could help: Aspire One Forums

Linpus is based on fedora so the fedora docs will work just fine.
